Don Pedro's beachfront restaurant in Sayulita Nayarit Mexico

Amazing view
Salsa night every Monday
A Sayulita Must

Don Pedro's Restaurant in Sayulita Mexico sits under a giant thatched palapa surrounded by panoramic views of ocean and jungle, and offers expertly prepared Mediterranean-style cuisine with a Mexican influence. The restaurant is nestled on Sayulita's golden beach and guests delight in an unforgettable dining experience while surfers ride gentle waves in full view.

Come at 7:00 PM for salsa lessons. Thursdays bring Gypsy Flamenco with Latcho and Andrea at 7:00 PM.

The Story of Don Pedro's

In 1992, two cousins, Damien and Nicholas, set off from Los Angeles on a surf and culinary adventure. Making their way south, they stumbled upon a diamond-in-the-rough called Sayulita. With one phone line in town at the Paleteria and hardly any other services, Sayulita was a dusty fishing village that time seemed to have forgotten. Tucked into a jungle-clad bay with a consistent rivermouth break, Sayulita's serene natural beauty and the warm hospitality of the locals impressed the two travelers, so much that they decided to stay. And thus a dream began to crystallize - to build a world-class restaurant on the beach of this little paradise. Like many passionate dreamers, they were laughed at, told it would never work. But true to the old adage "if you build it, they will come", they did... and the people came. Over fifteen years later, they keep coming back.

Giving Back

From the onset of their experience in Sayulita, Damien and Nicholas have always believed in improving the quality of life for the locals who call this place home. They financed the restoration of the malecon and fortification of the beach area. They have repeatedly contributed to the development of the growing town's sewer system and financed upgrades to the local power grid. Most importantly, Don Pedro's has employed at least one member of every founding family of the village. Don Pedro's continues to be the largest employer in Sayulita.

Nicholas Parrillo
Executive Chef /Co-owner

Chef Parrillo received formal training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and matriculated at the Culinary Institute of America. He further honed his skills in fine establishments such as Rex IL Ristorante of Los Angeles, Prego's of Beverly Hills, Rebecca's of Venice Beach and I Cugini of Santa Monica. For Chef Parrillo, Don Pedro's is a dream come true - a culinary laboratory where the freshest local ingredients and Mexican flavors meet classical Mediterranean and cutting-edge Californian techniques to create a distinctly unique dining experience. Chef Parrillo, his wife and two children live on a ranch just outside Sayulita where he grows many of his special organic ingredients.

Damien Porter
Executive Director/Co-owner

Upon graduating UC Berkeley in 1992, Damien set off on a journey to ride the ultimate wave. What started as an "Endless Summer" surf safari turned into a visionary enterprise in a foreign land. Throughout his extensive global travels, Damien was always drawn to the local cultures that embraced him. In Sayulita, the genuine hospitality of the village convinced him of the tremendous potential for a world-class gourmet experience just steps away from the surf. Damien lives in Sayulita where he oversees several businesses and still surfs any chance he gets. Damien, Nicholas and the Don Pedro's family welcome you to enjoy this little paradise on earth.

If you love lobster......this is the place. For about 25 American, you get 3 or 4 split tails plus potato n veg and clarified butter. Service is outstanding. My wife ordered the filet and it was butter tender. Right on the beach with outstanding views of the surf/surfers. We ate there twice.

Overall good
We have gone to Don Pedro's every time we go to Sayulita, and recommend it everyone else. The food is good, you can pretty much order anything off the menu and it will look good and taste great. They changed their policy on beach chairs, so be sure to check in and reserve a chair the day before you actually go, or you'll show up and none will be available.

We ate at Don Pedros at least 3 times during our recent visit to Sayulita. Their Tuna Tostadas are to DIE FOR, Couldn't get enough. Breakfasts are fantastic, spicy margaritas didn't disappoint. The ocean front location is amazing, A must visit when you are in Sayulita.
